This afternoon.

At the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin

Tourist Natalia Puchalska viewing the stain glass window entitled Scandalous by artist Harry Clarke acquired by Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and featuring an exposed breast.

The work depicts a scene from Liam O’ Flaherty‘s novel ‘Mr Gilhooley’ – created for the Geneva Window of the League of Nations building in Geneva but deemed too risque by the Government of the day (1920s).
